    ***Editor's Note: Due to a busy schedule for this week I will not be writing the usual intro that I put in most of these race threads that I create each week. If I get some free time later this week where I can focus on writing a decent intro segment, I will do so.***

    For those interested in what became of Matt Kenseth's car that flipped at Talladega several races ago, it now lies scattered around a metal scrapyard. Credit to JGR's Facebook page for providing the video of the trashed car getting ground up:

    Looking forward to this long race on the 3 day weekend. I am going to greatly enjoy being able to sit back and relax doing nothing while watching Nascar.

    Not just that, but 1100 miles of racing on Sunday with the Indy 500. I always look forward to this weekend of racing.

    I've never been much for F1, and that's way too early for me to wake up and watch a race lol. I did see the last few laps of the 2014 race because we were getting up and getting ready to go to the garage at Charlotte.

    Wish I could attend this race like last season, but at least I get to watch the Monaco GP and Indy 500 from the comforts of my own home for the first time in two years. (In 2014, I was on my way to Atlanta, and last year I got to watch a couple of laps at the Chevrolet Performance truck outside of the track.) Should be a fun long weekend full of racing and track editing....

    I'll be at my very first Coca-Cola 600 Sunday. It's been awesome watching it from home but now it's finally time to go see it live.

    me either but it is a nice break from oval races. Last year's race had some great passing/racing from guys in the back of the pack.

    You're gonna enjoy it, I've gone to the last two 600's and while it seems long 5 hours flies by quickly.

    One of these years I want to go to the 600. After the Daytona 500, which I've already been to, that's next on the NASCAR Bucket List.

    Oh totally. I've been to NHMS and that race just seems to drag on. There's not much better than a night race at Charlotte.

    I have always stayed downtown and taken the shuttle in. The shuttle takes these back roads and there is absolutely no traffic.

    Benny Parsons (finally), Rick Hendrick, Mark Martin, Raymond Parks, and Richard Childress are the Class of 2017 for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Also H. Clay Earls gets the Landmark Achievement Award

    Martin surprised me a bit but he certainly deserves it. 5th most wins in the national series of all-time.

    Also there probably could be a separate thread for the Hall of Fame announcement. Could be some debate about who should've gotten in instead, or about how NASCAR should reduce the number of guys who get in per year (which I think they should).

    I don't know how to feel about people who are still active in NASCAR getting to be part of the HOF. Glad to Benny Parsons (overdue in my opinion) and Mark Martin on that list.
